TO: CSPP M.A. Students

FROM: Pat McCarthy Veach, Coordinator

RE: Annual Review of Student Progress


Each academic year, the CSPP faculty reviews the progress of each student in the program. The attached questionnaire is designed to summarize your CSPP-related activities during the past year in addition to asking about your projected plans for next year. After the review takes place, you will be notified by letter about the outcome.

It is very important that we receive these forms back from each CSPP M.A. student (EVEN IF YOU ARE GRADUATING THIS SPRING). The anonymous survey asking about the CSPP program should be handed in separately. Please print and complete the forms. Return them and an unofficial copy of your graduate transcript to 206 Burton by noon on Friday, April 7th. If you have difficulty printing this form, there are hard copies available in 206 Burton. Failure to complete this form by the deadline noted above will result in a hold being placed on your fall registration.

If you have questions regarding the forms or the review process, please consult your advisor. Thank you in advance for your timely completion of these forms. Your opinion really does matter.

Dear 1st year M.A. students:

Greetings!

CSPP faculty and staff would like to continue to provide a way for students to regularly share their concerns, ideas, and other feedback. One way this kind of dialogue between students and faculty has taken place is by the election of student representatives. This year we would have 2 student representatives for each of the following cohort: the 1st year MA. cohort, the 2nd year M.A. cohort, and the Ph.D cohort. I will be coming into your career counseling class next Thursday morning to conduct the election. Please think about people who you would like to nominate; self-nomination is also accepted. Please also refer to the paragraphs below for the duties of student representatives.

Thank you very much!

Duties of CSPP Student Representatives:

Student representatives attend and participate in Student and Faculty Representative meetings. Although these meetings are public, and open to all students and faculty, it is the responsibility of the representatives to attend. Meetings are typically held once every two weeks during the academic year. Scheduling of the meetings will be done to accommodate as much as possible representatives schedules.

The primary duties of student representatives include bringing information from the faculty group to all graduate students, and bringing concerns and ideas to the faculty group as appropriate. The job of the student representatives will be to meet with Dr. Turner and Dr. Wahl to help formulate activities, provide consultation to the faculty group on broader issues, and represent student viewpoints on appropriate issues.

Primary issues of discussion during these Representative meetings are: What do the CSPP graduate students need on a programmatic level in order to function more effectively; and what do students need on a programmatic level in order to better meet their educational and career goals. Issues that pertain to individual classes and/or faculty members will not be handled or discussed in these meetings or by student representatives.
